Oven Baked Sweet Potato Fries Recipe

Our family loves sweet potatoes—and we frequently use them as side dishes all year long.  Sometimes as simple, baked sweet potatoes with cinnamon and brown sugar—other times as mashed sweet potatoes, whipped with butter, cinnamon and brown sugar.  We have tried commercial sweet potato fries with some success—so I thought we would create a recipe and serve some homemade, oven baked sweet potato fries from fresh sweet potatoes.  We are submitting this as our letter S entry in the Blogging from A to Z challenge.  S is for Sweet Potatoes.

Oven Baked Sweet Potato Fries Ingredients
2 Large Sweet Potatoes, peeled and cut into fries of desired size and shape
2 Tbsp. Olive Oil
¼ tsp. Salt
½ tsp. Garlic Powder
¼ tsp. Ground Black Pepper
½ tsp. Paprika
½ tsp. Cumin
1 tsp. Brown Sugar

Instructions for Oven Baked Sweet Potato Fries
Prepare oven and baking sheet.  Preheat oven to 425F.  Lightly spray a baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray.

Oil and season sweet potato fries.  Add the cut sweet potatoes to a large zippered plastic storage bag or to a lidded bowl.  Add oil and shake potatoes to coat.  Combine seasonings in a small mixing bowl and stir to combine.  Pour seasoning mixture into bag of oiled sweet potatoes.

Bake.  Spread potatoes onto prepared baking sheet and bake for 35-45 minutes or until sweet potatoes are tender on the inside and have the desired crispness on the outside. Plan to turn potatoes every 10 minutes during baking to allow for even cooking.

Serve warm.

  1. I fix regular potatoes this way sometimes. I keep forgetting about sweet potatoes. I'm trying to visit all the A-Z Challenge blogs this month. My alphabet is at myqualityday.blogspot.com

  2. The best thing to enjoy sweet potato fries is bake them. We can get the crisp, while on the other hand we don't need to be afraid with the high calories usually contained in deep fried fries. Great post.
